Today's Downtime.

Good evening!

We'd very sorry for the unexpected downtime today. We discovered a few areas that were causing massive site slowdowns, the biggest one being the forum software. With hundreds of users and gigabytes of data, we've simply outstripped the plugins ability to support our users.

For now, the forums are down. We will be investigating other forum software over the next few days and converting the forums over. Rest assured that all your content has been backed-up.

Please stay tuned for further updates. This is a very high priority issue for us, and we appreciate your patience while we move HeroMachine forward with shiny new software.

  1. That’s cool. I’ve been having a lot of problems with the forums running like they should lately. I’m glad y’all have identified the issues.

  2. Thank goodness. I was worried the whole site was down.

  3. Great to know improvements are on the way! Thanks, Ben!

  4. Hey, why doesn’t everyone post a pic on the Heromachine Facebook page? It’s a great alternative to the forums and we can see what everyone’s latest and greatest pics.
